Just a question about a Bdn business

Does anyone know what years Wilson's Stationery was situated on Rosser avenue in Brandon ?

MY

My first move out of Brandon was 1979. I'm quite sure they were here then but not sure where.

town centre

I know for sure they were in the Towne Centre in early/mid 80's. I'm not sure where they were before that time or how long they were there till though.

Wow phantoms

That's an awesome photo. I remember Ricki's in that area but I don't remember Wilson's there. I believe that is a view looking east making Wilson's on the south side of rosser.

Wilson's

Yep, Wilson's was on the South side of Rosser. I'm just trying to get some info after having a conversation about a few stores in downtown Brandon. Thanks everyone for your input.

10th &; Rosser

looking east. Building on the right is the Bank of Montreal at 10th and Rosser. Looks like Willson was in 934 or 932 Rosser. Picture looks like early 60s - when was Rosser two way?

How cool is that?

I am trying to get my bearings on this photo. If Willson's was on the north side of Rosser, then the photo is looking to the west. I just don't recall Rosser being two way traffic.  
 
Also thinking that this was a privately owned business due to the spelling of the name "Willson" with two "l's".  
 
Do you recall what the cross street would be?  
Thanks for a memory.

Looking at the cars in the picture, I do not see anything newer than early-mid fifties.

Willson's Stationery - Other Picture

I have spent the past half-hour or so looking at all the vintage pictures on the website linked by phantoms-thank you.  
 
There is another picture of the Willson's storefront. You can even make out some of the items available for sale!

What a wonderful trip down memory lane, even if I am a bit too young to remember everything

Willson Stationers

was a national chain. Owned by Federal Industries (at least, in the 80s).
